Check out our guide for some small dos and don’ts when you’re visiting a Japanese home for the first time.

Since the Japan Centre food shop moved to a new premises in Regent Street, you may have noticed that there have been some changes to our bookshop. Unfortunately, due to a lack of space, we have been unable to display a large range of our products.
That was before…
Due to the Crown Estate wanting to tidy up much of London in preparation for the 2012 Olympics, we had to leave our old location in 212-213 Piccadilly. But there’s good news, Japan Centre is expanding again!
The Bookshop and Homeware departments have now moved into the Japan Centre Food Hall located at 14 Regent Street. This section will soon be expanding to offer an even wider range of books, magazines and homeware.
The new Toku Restaurant will be opening May/June 2010 at 16 Regent Street right next to our Food Hall. If you can’t wait that long, don’t fret – a new Toku Restaurant Sushi Bar will be opening first in April 2010. Keep checking our blog for more details! Read More…
